For over a century, we've accepted the scientific consensus that cancer results from genetic disease due to chromosomal damage in cell nuclei. But what if scientists are chasing a flawed paradigm? What if cancer isn't a disease of damaged DNA but rather of defective metabolism as a result of mitochondrial dysfunction? What if that startling truth could revolutionize our understanding of other diseases, too - and show us a radical new path to optimal health?

this is an excellent book for anyone who wants to live a healthy life. Dr Mercola always provides information that is relevant, accurate and supported by research. I did not expect anything less with this book.

This classic expose of the Fed has become one of the best-selling books in its category of all time. Where does money come from? Where does it go? Who makes it? The money magician's secrets are unveiled. Here is a close look at their mirrors and smoke machines, the pulleys, cogs, and wheels that create the grand illusion called money. A boring subject? Just wait. You'll be hooked in five minutes. It reads like a detective story - which it really is, but it's all true.

I am deeply saddened by the deception of our government and leathers and The evil therein. The depth, scope and research of this book is invaluable. I thank the author for his work. I am telling everyone too read this book, but I should have read it right when I purchased it years ago. I hope and pray that we are not too late.

Would you listen to Change Your Brain, Change Your Body again? Why?

I read some of the reviews and I am frankly puzzled by anyone who would say that this book is "not worth 2 credits". It is your LIFE. What are you willing to pay to be healthy? As a healthcare provider I will definitely listen to this book again. It is packed with useful information to help us keep our brains AND our bodies healthy. I am not sure what is more important. Thank you Dr. Amen for doing your due diligence and publishing this information which if utilized, will save many many lives and increase other's quality of life.
I personally recommend this and your other books regularly in my practice.

Have you listened to any of Marc Cashman’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Marc has a pleasant voice and makes the information both pleasing and interesting. I have listened to some who narrate good books but have a grating voice. This is not one.

First published in 1923, this lightly fictionalized biography of Jesse Livermore, one of the greatest market speculators ever, is widely regarded as one of best investment books of all time. Reminiscences of a Stock Operator is the resource that generations of investors have turned to when they needed deeper insight into their own investing habits and those of others. Listen to this work, featuring narrator Rick Rohan, and you'll soon discover your portfolio growing in new and unexpected ways!

This is an interesting historical account of the early days of stock trading and is fun to listen to. The author identifies many of the emotional hurdles one must overcome with trading--many of which still occur today. I was saddened by the ending.
